Planned Parenthood caught covering up child rape in Philadelphia
The Pro-Life Action League has uncovered some disturbing information in Philadelphia. The Pennsylvania Department of Health posted inspection reports recently, which the Pro-Life Action League then reviewed. What they found was not only despicable and disgusting, but also criminal.
On August 29, 2013 Department of Health inspectors conducted an annual registration survey [PDF] of Planned Parenthood’s Locust Street Health Center, during which they reviewed the facility’s policy related to external reporting to appropriate agencies as related to The Pennsylvania Crimes Code and the Child Protective Service Law.
The Planned Parenthood Locust Street Health Center’s policy, updated December 2012, stated:
Statutory sexual assault (“statutory rape”) is sexual intercourse when one person is under the age of 16 and the other is 4 or more years older. It is a crime, however it is NOT a mandated reportable incident.
This is, of course, false. And the Pennsylvania Department of Health inspectors found that for six of the girls seen at Planned Parenthood under the age of 16, no one at Planned Parenthood had any documentation proving that they had verified the age of the person who had sexual intercourse with the girls.
But it only gets worse:
Of these six girls, two were age 14, and four were age 13.
… Two of the 13-year old girls were known to have had sex before the age of 13. One reported her first sexual intercourse at age 11. Another reported her first sexual intercourse at age 12. It was in their medical records. Even Planned Parenthood’s own policy acknowledged that sex with a child under age 13 is always, by definition, rape.
Under Pennsylvania law, a child under 13 cannot give consent. These incidents of child sexual abuse should have been reported by Planned Parenthood employees, but they were not.
This is an ongoing problem at Planned Parenthood, and it should be shouted from the rooftops until all Americans know that this is the “health care” that our daughters get at Planned Parenthood. Their counselors do not care if someone is a victim of rape or sex trafficking. They do not care if the abortion is coerced. What matters is the dollars that the girl brings in — as long as the money is flowing, Planned Parenthood will look the other.
Live Action has proved this in our investigations over and over again, catching Planned Parenthood covering up statutory rape and child sex trafficking. And while abortion apologists like to claim that our investigations are manipulative and false, Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry have shown repeatedly that our investigations are, sadly, extremely accurate. An abortionist in Indiana was caught covering up the statutory rape of a 13-year-old girl. And there are more real-world examples, like the 13-year-old impregnated by her stepfather and forced into an abortion, or the 11-year-old girl raped by her 17-year-old boyfriend and given an abortion. 40-year-old Adam Gault kidnapped teenager Danielle Cramer and held her captive for over a year, impregnated her, and took her to Planned Parenthood for an abortion. They killed the baby and then gave Cramer back to Gault. There are more, of course, but all of these crimes have one thing in common: the clinic staffers knew and did nothing.
These stories will continue to happen as long as the abortion industry is allowed to continue on breaking the law with no consequences. Girls are abused and victimized, and the abortionists continually show that they will look the other way. What will it take for us to speak up and say no more? How long can we allow these atrocities to continue?
